Recently, dear ones of mine became really ill with Covid. I asked them if there was anything I can do for them, meaning if they needed any food or groceries. But they both replied, “Just continue to keep us in prayer.”
Their faith in prayer reminded me of the power of prayer! “Praying unlocks the doors of Heaven and releases the power of God.” – Billy Graham. In James 4:2 we’re reminded, “You do not have because you do not ask.” Not only are we to bring our needs to God, but Scripture says we’re to also bring the needs of others to Him. How often do we pray for our coworkers by name? Do we care for them enough to pray for them? Even the ones that trouble us. Do we pray for their needs? Do we even know what their needs are? May we engage and invest in our coworkers so our prayers may be used by God to impact them.
Consider: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” Philippians 4:6, NASB.
